starting anew


Where it all began

Thanks to Robert Lee Brewer’s April Platform Challenge, I am feeling emboldened to launch my new and improved site. Like all of us, it remains a work in progress. My hope is for it to inform and inspire.

I’d like to create the impression of a hopeless romantic; but that’s my husband Jim’s department. In fact, this artsy shot of palms against hot sand was taken by my equally artsy daughter at our Puerto Rican family reunion last October. Yes, that would be my husband’s family. In a real sense, it DID all start here. Island get-aways, time to reflect and write of sand and sea . . . with Jim’s supportive encouragement, without which neither I nor this site would have come to be.
